as the standard for their aspirations of course, the disappointed the arab world and the united states to nothing to prevent to the partition of the arab lands or those countries empires nor did american come to the assistance of the arab world when the united states returned after the second world war it was a dominant power to subordinate the middle east with priorities but with the election of barack obama united states seem to be on the threshold of a new era of positive and engagement and i have come here he told his audience to seek a new beginning between the united states and moslems around the world based upon mutual interest and mutual respect. he spoke of years of mistrust and of the needs to say openly of the things that we say in our hearts. there must be a sustained effort to listen to each other and learn from each other and to seek common ground. this language of mutual respect and understanding represented a total reversal of policies to the white house. gone was the language of the war on terror obamacare had requested staffers gone was the ambiguity over torture that had underm
worry that the united states may sink into deflation and that was one consequence of the rate hitting zero bound. limiting the scope. those decisions in this period were faced with the risk of hitting zero-bound, policy makers should control the rates and being constrained by the lower bound on the policy interest rate. although these were warranted in policies in subsequent years, the question remains if the policy was necessary. since we cannot know how the economy would evolve under policies, the answer to this question is conjectual. one approach by this question is to compare policies during this period and the recommendations from the taylor rule, developed by john taylor of stanford university. this approach is subject to a number of indications. notably simple policy rules like the taylor rule are only rules of thumb and important people can disagree about the details of such rules. moreover simple rules may leave out factors that may be relevant such as the risk of the policy rate hitting zero-bound. which is why we don't make policy based on such rules alone. for these reaso
in the united states had to be ground and because of money and power and they always say van dare was like family to bush. we're dealing with these leaders that making deals back home deals with people and then all of the sudden they come back you know and roost here and then you wonder why we're being attacked. we're spending our own money to give this money to these people for energy to come back and kill us with our own money. when we going to wake up? you know? it's like we're being directed in one way and then when we make deals with these people they're suppose to be the good guy and look what happens. host: thanks for the call. "washington post" says al qaeda benefits for decades worth of miss stepped in yemen. first of all u.s. commandos are trained encounter tactics. many say the war could arrive too late to change the trajectory in yemen. since the u.s.s coal attacked the nation has been past toward the illusion that the government is weak to control swats in the country. it's stretched thin and separatist movement in the south. it's got high employment unemployment rate and al
states became a global power and i'm thinking back to the monroe doctrine about the united states and our sphere of influence, you are asking about strategic interest in rebuilding haiti. i do think that there is interest on the part of the united states strategically to engage haiti and make sure that this epic human catastrophe resolves itself, and this is going to take a very long time, but look, the united states was the first one to announce humanitarian help. we're always the biggest contributor when natural disasters happen in the world. no other country on the face of the earth in the history of the world does more to help people in situations like this than the united states of america. we always deliver. the question is, how best to do this? and when you look back since 1992, since the clintons were in office, what you've seen is a dedication of $3 billion from the united states going into haiti. it is still incredibly poor despite all of this effort on the part of the united states and other nations. in fact, haiti has the greatest number of nongovernmental organizations, ngos,
barack obama, the u.s. president, that there will be further attacks on the united states unless he takes steps to resolve the palestinian situation. in an audiotape obtained by al- jazeera on sunday, the al qaeda chief, praised the nigerian accused of the christmas day bombing." we would give a listen to a translation of that tape. -- we will get a listen to a translation of that tape. >> made peace beyond those that osama bin laden brings guidance to. our message, carried by words, conveyed to you through the flame of the hero, we have proved that the heroes of 9/11 can be effective. the message is that america will never dream of living in peace unless we lived it in palestine. it is not fear -- it is not fair that you enjoy a safe life while our brothers in gaza suffered greatly. with god's will, we will continue as long as you continue to support israel. peace be on those that follow the lead of guidance. host: that tape was released yesterday. first, a quick political note, marion barry is set to announce his retirement after seven terms, according to two sources. the move would mak
the rhetoric. >> do you think, mr. murray, that barack obama, the president of the united states, his being in boston, him being up there on the stump, is that going to help? is that really going to wake up those who might think, wait a minute, we've got to go vote on news. >> i think it does. it brings attention to how important this race is. and what is at stake. literally the agenda of the president. you showed senator kennedy and he's someone who is strong in his beliefs and fought for it. but he also was able to reach out to the no child left behind and in certain areas. isn't it unfortunate that other americans haven't been able to offer that compromise that senator kennedy offered to former president george bush on issues of education and other types of things? we've got a republican minority that is really trying to obstruct the will of the voters and no one knows more about this than you do. where does the middle class and pushing all of the same rhetoric that dick cheney and george bush did for so many years? >> barack obama hasn't done anything to eliminate the middle class in ma

virginia. it is a huge room filled with computers. it is basically the brain of the united states intelligence system. any tip -- it was created after september 11. this was the place that was supposed to answer the 9/11 commission report on the failure to connect the dots. this is the place. this is one of its first big tests. this is a place in northern virginia were all the data comes in. there's not a single agency that is supposed to run the show entirely. it's under the office of the director of national intelligence. it is under the director. it is not any single persons jurisdiction. all the different agencies are supposed to be participating. they are all supposed to share the data and make sure they do not miss things. in design, it is supposed to do exactly what it should have done here. it did not. why? i do not know the answer. caller: good morning. in the regulatory world, there's a thing called root cause analysis when a problem occurs. you look to find out what the true systemic cause of the problem was. when i look at what i know, this was not a system failure. th
to establish a good relationship with the president of the united states because the united states is so a important to our vital interests, economic, security interests. they are our best ally and closest neighbor. they are our very best friend in the world as well and we should not forget that. we have established a good relationship. we have been working to align our approach is on a number of economic and environmental issues. i enjoy working with president obama. i do not envy him. his challengers are much greater than mine. they have so many more global responsibilities dain canada but the problems with the economy, health care, you name it, there frankly so much more. i do not envy his position. as i have said to my american friends, we are here to try and be helpful while protecting our own interests. >> you were recently in china. let's get your perception of the premier who seemed to give you a dressing down for taking so long to come. they are in very powerful players. when was your perception? >> we attend international summits quite regularly and i have had a chance to have
on iran might precipitate a wider third war for the united states in the greater middle eastnd we couldn't afford that. we thought the smartest strategy was to build up sanctions, sport for sanctions against iran and we'll see that, i think, play out in real life over the next couple of months. we wanted to shine a bright light and a stronger light on the human-rights abuses of the iranian government. we wanted to draw a military cordon around iran to contain it and the united states, i think, is in a good position to do that. and we wanted to play for the long-term because we wanted... we didn't want to do anything that would movement in iran and we thought the early use of force might effectively kill that opposition movement. and so in playing for the long term, we assume that there is some kind of solution here short of the use of u.s. military force. that is the hand we played that happens to be my own view as well. >> rose: all right. let me go to gary, the iranian hand. which has been influenced, obviously, by the political turmoil after the election. was that factored in or did t
resistence did you run into trying to accomplish it? >> well, charlie, we felt that the united states was actually in better shape now than it was a year ago. president obama, we felt, had done more to advance the agenda because he has essentially put the iranians on the defenve. and the iranians are more isolated now than they were when president obama was negotiating. so we were playing for the long term in the simulated game. the american team that i lead was trying to position all of our friends and partners to put greater pressure on the iranians. we wanted very much to avoid an early israeli use of force because while we are very sympathetic, of course, to the israeli predictment, we felt that an israeli attack on iran might precipitate a wider third war for the united states in the greater middle east and we couldn't afford that. we thought the smartest strategy was to build up sanctions, sport for sanctions against iran and we'll see that, i think, play out in real life over the next couple of months. we wanted to shine a bright light and a stronger light on the human-rights a
you are president of the united states. that doesn't work when you come into washington d.c. and you have people like nancy pelosi and harry reid and politicians on the hill that will call your-- claw your eyes out if you stand still. he has not asserted himself. he has not been the barack obama of iowa. i keep waiting for the barack obama of iowa. >> rose: what was the barack obama of iowa reasons barack obama of iowa was a guy that reached out to republicans and to independents who would come in to me, when we were going around iowa doing our show there during the caucus saying you know what, this guy isn't wedded to all of those fights and those ideaological battles that bill clinton and hillary clinton and george w. bush fought from 1968 on. he's going to take us forward. the problem is he has turned his presidency over, over the past year, to people whose political careers were framed that way. i think he's going to have to stop being the law professor, start being the leader. i think he's going to start being more lbj. >> rose: back to you for health care, adam. is health-care
the united states and japan, between the foreign minister and secretary clinton. they're really starting to cement their relationship. i can sense the chemistry and the trust developing between the two. that's deeply gratifying. in addition, the secretary gave a speech really outlining -- to interact with asia when it comes to its fledgling international organizations. and so even though the trip was abriefiated, i think we got quite a bit of work done. as p.g.a. indicated, this is today we're marking the 50th anniversary of the u.s.-japan security alliance, the security partnership. it's no exaggeration to say that it has been the cornerstone and the foundation of everything that we've managed to accomplish over the course of the last few generations inin asia. and we hear this not just from japanese friends but throughout the region. over the course of the last couple of months, as the united states and japan worked together on a series of challenging matters, one of the things that's been most interesting and gratifying is how much we hear from other countries in the region, from sout
. the murder rate in the united states in 1991 was -- there were 24,000 murders. the population is roughly two of its 60 million. last year in afghanistan, 2000 afghans died in the violence but the population of afghanistan was roughly 30 million. do the math. . . why did the afghans -- what is your view of the future? when americans ask this question, i am surprised only 17% said that. if u.s. afghans the same question, 40% had the view. but as a surprising answer, given that we're the most corrupt country in the world, but the reason afghans have this answer is because this looks like what we have lived through. each one of these would be devastating to a country, so even though we know all the problems, what is going on is better than the last -- then the past. almost none of the refugees have returned. refugees did not return to a place they do not think they have a future, and afghans do not think they have a future. many people, including girls, when asked if they have more freedom, 75% said yes. let's say we solve afghanistan given what i have said, there is still a problem with pakista
in the united states. checking this. count three is a willful attempt to rewreck and destroy an aircraft. again, this is literally coming into my ear as i am sharing it with you, and my producer is sharing the information, a ha! here we go. i just was able to finally open up this attachment that shares the information with us. i will go through with it one more time. all times -- do we have a steady cam to bring around? go ahead, robert. make your way over here. let me share it with the viewers here. i don't want to spend too much time on it, but being an important story, i want to show it. come in tight. grand jury charges common allegations at all times material to the indictment, delta airlines with the commercial flight, and two -- and goes on to explain exactly what happened there. is abdulmutallab, the defendant, who is a nigerian pas snational was a passenger on the flight, and then it talks about petn, and high explosive within the meaning of section 921 united states code. all of the stuff that essentially we have been talking about over the last week, but this makes it official, and t
sense of energy that you always have at this time, just before the president of the united states comes in and speaks before the entire u.s. congress. the difference now is that that electricity has a sense of uncertainty in it, a big sense of uncertainty, and anxiety among democrats who didn't think that they would have this much anxiety this early in an election year but i got to tell you, still the overwhelming sense, even more than a week after the election in massachusetts is a sense of shock among democrats, and that is the kind of audience predominantly that the president is going to be facing here. ed was talking about health care. we know that that is in dire straights. all day long democratic leaders trying to figure out how to salvage that and jobs, what everybody wants to hear the president talk about. when it comes to the senate because they don't have that 60-vote majority anymore, we're already hearing that they're trying to scale back that, and maybe from their perspective, call the republicans' bluff a little bit and try to put forward some of the issues that they think
and bush outside the oval office where they pledged that the united states would help to rebuild haiti. >> it will be difficult. it is an enormous challenge to distribute the aid safely and quickly in a place that has suffered such destruction. >> i know a lot of people want to send blankets or water, just send your cash. one thing the president and i will do is make sure the money is spent wisely. >> what these men have said is true. it is still one of the most remarkable in the places i have ever been. they can escape their history and build a better future if we do our part. >> the united nations said the haiti disaster is the worst it has ever confronted. it is estimated that 200,000 people died with 2 million homeless. hundreds of thousands of people are still waiting for the aid to reach them. logistical problems and violence hindered the efforts. this report from port-au-prince contains a distressing images. >> this is port-au-prince from the air. you can see how these size and importance of the building was its curse. this was the supreme court. this was the presidential palace
and ally to united states and the partnership between our countries is -- a new beginning, based on mutual respect and mutual interest that the president called for in cairo. we will discuss how to deepen and broaden our partnership. among the matters that we consulted on -- the situation in yemen is a top concern. how can we work together and with others to stabilize yemen? assist in securing its borders and providing for its people in combating al qaeda? the instability in yemen is a threat to regional and global stability. and we are working with qatar and others to think of the best way forward to duck -- to try to deal with the security concerns. certainly, we know that this is a difficult set of challenges but they have to be addressed. i also thank the prime minister for their efforts to facilitate an end to the crisis in darfur and to promote security and stability in the broader middle east as well as africa. we both have a shared, mutual interest in moving towards a comprehensive peace between israelis and palestinians. we share the goal of an amendment -- an independent and viab
and attention to the policies of freedom itself not only in the united states but around the world. for the first lecture we asked, is freedom for everyone? the speaker did so eloquently that our subsequent speakers have matched. we have heard from economic freedom, religious freedom, on whether the united nations advances the cause of freedom and the important relationship between security and freedom. advancing freedom is a major goal of the heritage foundation and important work that we do here. in fact tomorrow, we will release in hong kong and washington the 16th edition of the index of economic freedom. you will want to stay tuned because there is a bit of big and i'm afraid bad news in the index score for freedom in the united states. our speaker today is dr. charles krauthammer. on december 25, he described president obama's first year in office the year of living fec tilously. most of us know that he writes a column for the "washington post." less known is that he is a harvard educated medical doctor who was a resident of psychiatry at massachusetts general hospital. in 19
in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. we see barack obama from two lens this week. on the one hand, he's the president. directing america's formidable might to ease the plight of millions in haiti. on the other, he's the de facto head of the democratic party. a party that just suffered a major electoral loss. there's lots of analysis what went wrong for the democrats, whether the country is in ideological terms to the left or sxrit what else this means for obama's presidency. is he a lame duck? let's start with some historical perspective. obama's approval ratings one year into his tenure are roughly the same as ronald reagan, bill clinton, jimmy carter's. the two bushes had higher ratings. 41 because of the collapse of the soviet union. and 43, because of 9/11. and the rallying effect that had on the presidency. so obama's situation is not dramatically worse than many of his predecessors which means it can be corrected. but what should he do? i would put it very simply. obama needs to start acting like a president and particularly the president he campaigned to be
the full support of the united states. we are working quickly to account for u.s. embassy personnel and their families in port-au-prince. as well as the many american citizens who live and work in haiti. >> mr. obama pointed dr. rajiv shah. dr. shah was sworn in to office last friday. the airport in haiti's capital, port-au-prince, fortunately not severely damaged. >> coordinated effort, focused very much on saving lives through aggressive search and rescue in urban -- urban environment for the next 72 hours. that will be the primary focus of our engagement. >> aid had begun to pour in. good morning, i'm andrea mitchel and we apologize for, obviously the technical problem was the wrong tape at the top of the program. as we go to the catastrophe in haiti today, the death toll in haiti may be far worse than originally feared. the haitian prime minister says that it could be well over 100,000 people. haitian senator went even further those numbers could not be verified by anybody in the u.s. government. haiti's president preval is calling it an unimaginable catastrophe. the national pa
began to invade iraq. remember that? only a month later, the congress of the united states voted to allow president bush to invade and occupy iraq. we now are in a second phase of the gop propaganda blitz, and it is even worse this time. this time the folks in massachusetts are the target. i'm a texan, i'm a democrat from texas, a state where we don't have a single democratic statewide official, which is directly opposite massachusetts. if you vote against the democratic candidate today, you will be joining the republicans in their attempt to bring down this obama administration and possibly even the united states government. host: open but the houston chronicle," home state paper has this front-page story -- "the houston chronicle." host: raleigh, north carolina, jim on the republican line. caller: thank you. i would just have to counter fred's argument and say that perhaps this election is somewhat like the shot heard around the world, the first election where the american populace and the voters are going to stand up and say no to the obama socialism machine. i just watch with
has more companies listed on the nasdaq than any other nation in the united states. there are more is really nasdaq companies and japanese come a canadian, british or german or anything. capitalism has not been shown to fail but to work. here in the united states there is a tremendous amount of self pity that is a encouraged by the victim would mentality. one of the things of my radio show michael medved every day we are proud to say i am not a victim. the idea of victimhood suggest this standard of living and the difficulties in choices are lower we cannot live the kind of lives are parents lived and everybody has heard this. it is nonsense. right here in the building we have done terrific work on this and i quote him extensively. if you look at any meaningful measure of living standards, the progress under capitalistic america has been dazzling and unprecedented. options available to people the extended life expectancy or opportunities for college rear at this stage where the majority of american young people in every ethnic group are pursuing some form of post high school gradua

obama has learned is that it is really hard to be president of the united states. [laughter] really, is a nightmare of a job. his american power is about two contradictory things. on the one thing, -- on the one hand, as a global, leading power, we are trying to keep the status pretty much in quo. on the other hand, there is this seedings source of capitalist renewal -- seething source of capital is renewal. we are causing as much trouble when we are inventing the internet as when we are invading iraq. we are blowing up the status quo at the same time that we are trying to defend it and the president of the united states is caught at the board tax of these conflicting issues. president obama -- at the vortexes of these conflicting issues -- the vortexes of these conflicting issues. use of president obama having to wrestle with all of these tensions. could you imagine the nerve it took to walk into closed-door sessions, blowing up diplomatic protocol. in doing this, not knowing if it was born to work. -- going to work. i wrote about an important moment for president obama. this will

on a united states bound plane for detroit, right? he's got explosives in his underwear. now we're in he path down culture. how far can we feel somebody up in an airport. dick cheney couldn't be happier about all of this, for some reason. can he be described as anything other than gloating? that's where cheney is. he claims the criticism comes from reading the national security brefs and knowing how many threats are out there against the united states. what a bunch of bull. here are cheney's own words. why doesn't president obama want to admit we're at war, cheney says? because if he does it -- because it doesn't fit with what seems to be a goal of his presidency. social transformation, the restructuring of american society. think about that. social transformation, restructuring of america society. folks, you know what that is? that is tea party talk, is what that is. obama's domestic policy agenda has absolutely nothing to do with a guy going through airport security in amsterdam. but cheney is, again, going after the president of the united states with his old pack particulars, attacking ba
could be about other possible attacks on the united states. and i really believe the president and attorney general holder really should rethink this. they should really rething this rigid commitment to the criminal justice system. after all, this guy came from outside the country. what he was planning was an attack on america. this is a war-like act. he should not be treated like a domestic criminal. >> larry: can you treat someone as a military combatant and then later try them criminally? >> you can do anything you want. the justice department could move him around in all different ways. the reality is in this particular case, he should have been treated as an enemy combatant. after all, the president and the attorney general have authorized military tribunals. now, if you are going to have military tribunals and you're going to try some people in a military tribunal, somebody who comes to the united states with a bomb to blow up an airplane in one of our cities should be treated as a war time criminal, not like a domestic criminal. and that may be an academic dispute for so
